April 1, 2024 (EIRNS)—The Russian Foreign Ministry issued a statement yesterday demanding the arrest of Ukrainian Security Service (SBU) head Vasyl Malyuk and others for involvement in terrorist attacks on Russian territory. “The brutal terrorist attack committed in Krasnogorsk on March 22, which shocked the whole world, is far from the first act of terrorism targeting our country in recent time. The investigative actions carried out by the competent authorities in Russia indicate that the trails of all these crimes lead to Ukraine,” it said, referring to the attack killing some 144 concert-goers are the Crocus City Hall theater outside Moscow.

After listing other terrorist crimes, the Aug. 20, 2022 car bomb assassination in Moscow of journalist Darya Dugina among them, the statement notes that “The killing and mutilation of civilians, including children, was accompanied by raids by the terrorist organization known as Russian Volunteer Corps.

“In this regard, the Russian Foreign Ministry has put forward a demand for the Ukrainian authorities, under the International Convention for the Suppression of Terrorist Bombings and the International Convention for the Suppression of the Financing of Terrorism to immediately arrest and extradite every person implicated in the above terrorist acts.

“One of the demands is to arrest head of the Security Service of Ukraine, Vasyl Malyuk, who cynically admitted on March 25 that Ukraine was behind the bombing of the Crimean Bridge in October 2022 and revealed details of the organization of other attacks in the Russian Federation.
